Epic Movies Don’t Sell In Nigerian Cinemas…I’m Thankful For The Legend Of Inikpi Broke That Record – MJ
Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson has revealed that her latest work, The Legend of Inikpi, which is still running in cinemas holds the biggest opening weekend in 2020.
Posting a video of one of the reviews by her fans who recently watched the movie, the expectant mother wrote:
“Should we apologise for making everyone cry? Thanks so much for sharing how much our film moved you! Are you a hard man or woman? Oya go and watch #TheLegendofInikpi and let us know.
“So grateful! #TheLegendofInikpi holds the biggest opening weekend in 2020 so far!
“The first reaction to my film was a rude awakening; ‘epic movies don’t sell in Nigerian cinemas’ Honestly, I was terrified when I saw statistics on statistics… I’m humbled to see the love that #TheLegendofInikpi has received in its first week.
It’s not the regular blockbuster figures of course but most importantly, it’s a strong validation that we should tell our stories and the people will come and watch them.”
